Pusha T Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Re-Up Gang “What’s Up?” (2005)

Produced by: Timbaland

Pusha T:We Got It For Cheap Vol. 2 was the best mixtape to me. But what people don’t really realize is that it’s hard to duplicate a mixtape. A good mixtape is the best of the time period. So, if the music in the next time period isn’t as good, when we put out the next volume it’s tough. I think that was the most current mixtape. It was current and the music was just perfect.

“But yeah, ‘Put You On The Game’ was crazy. I love that beat. Sometimes I get jealous man. When I heard that beat I was like, ‘Why don’t we have this beat? Why isn’t this ours?’ I think it’s a shame [we never worked with Timbaland]. I’ve tried a lot. Who knows why we haven’t. That’s all I’m going to say about that.”
